Short video for Breakfast – Vermine, indifference is the real parasite of society

No frills, no pompous speeches or long sermons, for a group of students of the Danish Animation Workshop a 5-minute animated short is enough to represent a society corroded by prejudice and indifference towards the lives of those around us.

The protagonist of the animated short Vermine is Hubert, a black rat in a society of white rats. Hubert is a dreamer, a poet, and his words describe with disarming simplicity everything he sees, the subway, the waiting, the other mice waiting on the platform.

The voice on the speaker announces that the subway train has a slight delay, nothing shocking, but sometimes a short time frame, a small change of schedule can change a life. The policemen approach Hubert, ask him for his documents, search him and find a notebook with his thoughts, his poems.
As often happens, those who have ideas, ideals, values are classified as dangerous by those who are used to performing without asking themselves any questions and so the end of Hubert is that which the revolutionary ideas do, they are suppressed.

The voice of the loudspeaker announces that everything is back to normal. But what normality? The one in which everyone is watching and nobody has the courage to do anything?
But perhaps not everything is lost, because sometimes words, thoughts survive the body. They survive in time.
